Event Details

On September 27, 2006, Duane Morrison entered Platte Canyon High School and took seven teenage girls hostage. For five hours, police, negotiators and SWAT teams tried to secure the girls’ safe release. Ultimately, six of the girls survived, but Morrison shot 16-year-old Emily Keyes and then himself.

Join Chris Schaefer, Agent in Charge with the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and lead investigator in this case as he walks you through the events that unfolded that day, and then takes you on the years-long investigation that has developed since.

Learn about the planning and actions that PCHS and local law enforcement did right, ultimately limiting the scope of the tragedy. School administrators, mental health professionals, criminal justice professionals, legal experts and community members will benefit from the behind-the-scenes look into a horrific event to be prepared if they face a similar situation in the future.
